• 9th Circuit Court Upholds Parents' Constitutional Rights: Rules Against Arizona Social Workers Removing Children without a Warrant

    In what is seen as a victory for parental rights, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of Arizona parents who had their 3 children removed from their home simply because they had taken photos of them after a bath when they were laying on a towel naked. They went to develop the photos at a Walmart, and an employee reported them to the police who were called in to investigate. The police investigation was extensive, including medical and forensic exams of the children looking for sexual abuse, as well as obtaining a warrant to search the family's home, where police "seized all the evidence that might be relevant to a child pornography investigation: computers, printers, photographs, cell phones, undeveloped film, floppy discs, DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes, and cameras." Police found no evidence of wrongdoing, so no charges were filed against the parents, and the children were returned home. However, Arizona social workers with a participating police detective decided to remove the young children from the home anyway, even without a court issued warrant. The children ended up in foster homes, but then later placed with their grandparents, and eventually returned home. The family sued the police detective and settled out of court, but Arizona courts ruled against the family suing the social workers citing state "Qualified Immunity" laws for social workers. The 9th Circuit disagreed, ruling that social workers are not above the law, and cannot violate the 4th and 14th Amendments, and that the courts have consistently ruled that families have a “well-elaborated constitutional right to live together without governmental interference.”

    We are in this situation now. In California. My babies have been gone a year. Second baby born 7 weeks early at 3 lbs. found to have 11 healing fractures. They want an explanation. We told them we took her home at 4 lbs. We swore up and down we did not and would not ever hurt her. They took her from the hospital and put her in the same foster home as her sister. One yr old. We have done everything they asked. They refuse to accept our response and won’t give our babies back. We have watched the one year old change by the day. This has broken my family and made me have no faith in our system. All who can help sit back with blinders on. So shameful. This is the biggest injustice facing our humanity today. Our rights have not only been violated but stomped on with no concern or respect. They found no other indication of abuse. She was a fragile preemie that we love very much. This is beyond a violation.

    Most corrupt Child Protector organization in America, I am very familiar with their corruption. They are a disgrace to the great state of Arizona and no one has the nerve to do anything about it, how shameful. Some federal agency needs to step in and prosecute some of these people. They are corrupt to the core.
